Mariners keep on win­ning

The Nation - - SPORTS -

The Seat­tle Mariners kept up one of the best starts in Ma­jor League Base­ball his­tory on Friday (Thai­land time), win­ning 7-6 in 10 in­nings at the Kansas City Roy­als to make it 13 wins from their first 15 games.

The only two teams to outdo them were the Mil­wau­kee Brew­ers (1987) and the At­lanta Braves (1982) – both went 13-0 at the start of those sea­sons.

The Mariners did it in Kansas as they have so far this sea­son; they hit home runs and they came from be­hind to win.

Mitch Haniger’s triple to cen­tre field in the top of the ninth in­ning bat­ted in two run­ners to tie it up at 6-6 and Dan Vo­gel­bach’s home run in the first ex­tra in­ning clinched the W.

It means Seat­tle have hit homers in all their first 15 games, also an MLB record.

Oak­land Ath­let­ics des­ig­nated hit­ter Khris Davis hit two homers in the 8-5 win over the Baltimore Ori­oles. It was the sec­ond straight day he hit 2 home runs and means he now has an MLB-lead­ing nine for the sea­son.
